You have had your moisture issue taken care of, you hired the 3rd party mold assessor, you hired a licensed mold remediation contractor and you have had the affected areas cleared by the assessor and you have had the areas rebuilt. Now you find your self asking… “how do i prevent future mold problems”? It actually starts before and at the rebuild. Some good ideas are to go outside, check your gutters and liters. Are you channeling the water away from your home and keeping it away from the foundation? Do you need any dry wells or diverting systems? After making sure all your water issues outside are ok it is then time to focus on the inside. Check your foundation walls. Are they any cracks, perhaps you can benefit from a latex based water proof coating on your foundation walls. This is helpful in keeping the moisture down. When rebuilding, if feasible spend some extra money on moisture friendly building products. You can use mold resistant wall panels, paperless drywall, composite base and door trim. There are many options and products available. Once you are done rebuilding you will want to maintain the proper environment. Dehumidifiers, air circulation, HEPA machines.
